    Rogue characters after monitor awakens (2000)

    I asked this question some time ago but never got a satisfactory answer. Perhaps some new member may be able to help. I am running Win98SE and if I have a document open in Word 2000 and the screensaver kicks in, moving the mouse to reactivate the screen results in a figure 7 being inserted where the cursor last was. Any ideas?

    I'm not new <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> but have you tried a different screen saver to see if it happens. You could also go through the steps in <post#=197827>post 197827</post#>.

    Is this limited to Word? If you have an Excel sheet, or a Notepad document, or a draft e-mail message open, do they also get the 7 ?
